The beloved books about Winnie the Pooh and his friends recently became public domain, which means that anyone can use them freely.
Filmmaker Rhys Waterfield (who produced C-movies such as “Dinosaur Hotel”, “Wrath of Van Helsing” and “Crocodile Vengeance”) makes his directorial debut with the film, which is said to be a mixture of absurdity and real terror.
In the trailer, it is revealed that Christopher Robin abandoned Winnie the Pooh and Piglet to go to college, only to find themselves turned into bloodthirsty killers when their human besties return.
Despite the silly premise, it looks like there will be a lot of blood and violence in “Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey” when the beasts attack the young people partying according to the genre’s standards.
This can be both a festively entertaining slasher for fans, a blood-drenching slaughter for those who like such things, or a useless turkey that only milks a poor popular brand. It remains to be seen when the film will be released later this year.
